Tasting Notes

"Deep, dark red colour with a strong tinge of purple and an oak-driven bouquet, which has a trace of funk and sweat. This breathed off quickly, leaving dark berries and violets. The wine is concentrated and sumptuous in its fruit flavour and ample firm tannins. A big, generous mouthful of cabernet, ripe and balanced and well-structured for the long haul. Tasted April 2017. Drink 2019–2035." Huon Hooke

"A flurry of regional flavours of blackberries, boysenberries, choc-mint, warm soil and bay leaf with cedary oak in check. There's detail on the medium-bodied palate and the raw silk tannins adding another layer of complexity. Neatly composed and drinking brilliantly now, better with extra bottle age." Drink to 2030. 95pts James Halliday
